Firefighters help deliver baby in home

Six Calgary firefighters took a break from battling flames Thursday to help a Calgary family welcome a new baby into the world. Around noon, a crew from the McKenzie Towne fire station, with the help of emergency medical services members, delivered a healthy baby boy at a home in Auburn Bay. Something grand

The London zoo has been holding special animal athletic events to coincide with the Olympics. Scan the code to see who’s king of this competitive jungle.

Much like they do for a dining endeavour or trip to the spa, Calgarians may soon be able to reserve thousands of downtown parking spaces for day trips. The Calgary Parking Authority is hoping to offer the feature to commuters with a downtown destination and has eyed piggy-backing on technology being pursued by Calgary Transit, which

is looking at a new booking system for its Park ’n’ Ride reservations at city LRT lots. While the system would enhance service for those already reserving spaces monthly in authority-owned parking garages, organization head Troy McLeod said the offering would also allow people to head online and pre-book stalls for single-day use. “Then you would have an assurance if you need to drive and need a stall that particular day,” McLeod said. “That would be one of the benefits.” The system would be easy to implement in downtown garages because they have a built-in light system that indicates whether a stall is

free, but McLeod said the authority is exploring methods to offer a reservation option in open-air, surface lots and potentially even for select on-street parking stalls as well. The on-street reservation possibility piqued the interest of Chris Himmelspeck, who works construction jobs in the downtown core weekly. “I would definitely use it on street.... We have to carry 200 to 300 pounds worth of tools,” he said. “Instead of walking two or three blocks, we would only have to walk like 30 feet to a job.” Follow Jeremy Nolais on Twitter @Metro_Nolais

Surface stalls

• A Calgary Transit spokesperson said the organization has had a “very brief conversation” about partnering with the city’s parking authority on a stall booking system, but no commitments have been made to date. • The parking authority owns 5,400 off-street parking stalls, 1,500 surface lot stalls and nearly 5,000 on-street stalls. • A new booking system may be ready to test by mid-2013, said parking authority head Troy McLeod.

“We’re saddled with the dark side of the news for a lot of our careers. This ... is something grand — something that will really pick them up and they’ll hold this for the rest of their career.” Battalion Chief Larry Fisher

Battalion Chief Larry Fisher said the couple was expecting to deliver their second child at home with the help of a midwife; however, labour progressed much quicker than they had anticipated and they called for help. “This was new for all of them (the firefighters),” said Fisher, adding they are trained to deliver babies. Fisher said a call like this comes as a welcome break, as firefighters often deal with Calgarians when they are in the midst of a tragedy as opposed to a happy occasion such as childbirth. As of Thursday afternoon, the baby boy had yet to be named. KATIE TURNER/METRO

Court. Child abductor to undergo psych assessment Admitted child abductor Randall Hopley made the bogeyman real, a British Columbia judge said Thursday as she ordered a psychiatric assessment for the man. B.C. Supreme Court Judge Heather Holmes ordered a 60day assessment to determine whether Hopley should be labelled as a dangerous or longterm offender. Hopley abducted three-year-old Kienan Hebert from his home in Sparwood, B.C., last September, only to return him unharmed several days later. Holmes said Kienan and his family appear to have moved on from the ordeal, but she said the impact of Hopley’s crimes

Study. B.C. to reap longterm rewards of pipeline A new study released by the Canadian Energy Research Institute Thursday states British Columbia will reap most of the rewards from the construction and operation of pipelines. The study reports that Alberta stands to gain the most wealth from the sale of oil to the United States and Asia, but according to CERI, B.C. will

see the financial gain over the long-term. According to the Calgary-based CERI, the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline could boost the country’s gross domestic product by $8.9 billion over 25 years. The report states B.C. would gain $4.7 billion, Alberta would make $2.9 billion and the remainder would go to Ontario. metro

Rescue. Crews continue search for presumed drowning victims Search-and-rescue teams worked tirelessly Thursday to find the bodies of two men believed to have drowned in separate southern Alberta incidents. A 21-year-old man from Calgary reportedly went underwater while swimming to shore after an apparent cliff dive at Seebe Dam area near Canmore around 7 p.m. Wednesday. “He has not been located as of yet,” said Cochrane RCMP Cpl. Gary Fedrau late Thursday afternoon. “It’s believed he was a good swimmer.”

The man was jumping with a female acquaintance when they became distressed. A second group of swimmers in the area helped the woman to shore but could not reach her partner in time, according to reports. Efforts also continued Thursday to locate a 22-yearold Coaldale resident who went underwater after sliding down an irrigation canal near the southern Alberta town of Raymond. The victims’ identities have not been released. Jeremy Nolais/metro

Calgary police have charged a man after he allegedly grabbed two women while riding a bicycle.

Quoted

“We felt confident he would come back to this location.” Acting Insp. Geoff Gawlinski

Glenn Stegemeier, 47, of Calgary is facing one count of sexual assault, one count of assault and one count of committing an indecent act in a public place. The first incident took place around 4 a.m. on July 10 when police said a man riding a bicycle rode past a woman while she was

walking near 28 Street and 9 Avenue S.E. and grabbed her breast. He then fled the scene. In the second instance, he was riding a bike naked from the waist down in the same area. He circled a 21-yearold woman repeatedly and grabbed her arm. When the victim screamed, he fled.

Late Tuesday evening, police were able to locate and arrest a man matching the same description on Radcliffe Drive S.E. “We did target that area considering the two recent incidents,” said Acting Insp. Geoff Gawlinski. “We felt confident he would come back to this location.” He said the suspect was using a pedestrian bridge over Memorial Drive as a vantage point. Stegemeier faced similar charges about 10 years ago, according to Gawlinski.

Sweet reward for ambitious Delhi family and Canadian bankers who helped After receiving exceptionally good service at Scotiabank’s Saddletown Circle Branch since he came to Canada six months earlier, Amit Chauhan decided to surprise the branch team with a  traditional Burfi shortcake. “They helped me get my first home, so I wanted to thank them,” recalls Amit who had just taken possession of a three-bedroom dream home in northeast Calgary. It was a sweet finale for Amit and Mrinali Chauhan, who came from India in June 2011, only to be stranded by heavy rain in a hotel with their three-year old daughter. “We stayed in and ordered pizza while Amit ran around arranging things,” recalls Mrinali, who was eight-months pregnant at the time.

“I was lucky to meet a lot of wonderful people who helped us find a home, including our brilliant banker and an exceptional realtor.” Reflecting on his family’s rapid settlement in Canada, including the birth of a son, a job and a comfortable home, Amit adds that, “From my hospitality training, I learned to connect with others and recognize people who will give their time and help you, like Syed.” For Amit, it made sense to continue that hospitality, by sharing dessert with his new friends at Scotiabank. THIS ADVERTORIAL IS PREPARED BY SCOTIABANK®.

The Chauhan family enjoy their new life in Calgary – including their own home – by connecting with others, including helpful local Scotiabankers.

Fortunately, the Chauhan family’s arrival was made easier by the fact that they had set up their Canadian bank account in India, so they could send funds safely to Canada before they landed. They had heard about the Scotiabank StartRight® Program1 International Account Opening at an information session for permanent resident applicants and they visited a Scotiabank branch in Delhi. They were later connected with Syed Haider, a Scotiabank Personal Banking Officer in Calgary, who helped them apply for a bank account in Canada and obtain pre-approval for a credit card2. “Everything went smoothly when I went to the Calgary branch, since I could access the funds I had transferred from day one and I had the credit card in my hand for all our expenses,” recounts Amit. “Even better, after travelling 7,000 miles I  could talk to Syed in my own language and get advice about apartments, schools and Indian groceries.” This gave Amit extra time to start job searching and, by applying connections from his hospitality education in India, he found a restaurant management position on day two. “It surprises people, but I used my networking skills to make local contacts, and I was ready to be flexible and take any hard work at the beginning,” explains Amit, who now welcomes visitors to Canada as a front-desk supervisor in a busy hotel. And Amit didn’t delay thinking about his longterm goals either, since he soon realized that buying a home was a better investment for his family’s future than paying expensive rent each month. “I didn’t think it would be possible to get our first home so quickly, but Syed reviewed my earnings and financial history and explained my options,” notes Amit, who qualified for the Scotiabank StartRight Mortgage Program3, a  hassle-free mortgage tailored for newcomers to Canada. 1.

Parental visit brings yearly bout of stress in defence of

Mike Morrison calgary@metronews.ca

Every year, one event in my life causes me more stress than any other. No, it’s not tax season or trying to identify that post-Stampede rash. It’s not even having to pretend the Flames are actually going to make the playoffs. It’s when my parents come to visit. Calgary is a city full of

people who’ve moved here, often from one side of the country to the other. So dealing with the folks coming to town is something that we’ve all experienced, likely with varying results. This week, as my parents touched down at the Calgary airport, I instantly began sweating and worrying, which is ridiculous. My parents are pretty cool people, so what exactly am I worried about? Even though I haven’t lived at home in seven years, as soon as mom and dad

walk past baggage claim, I almost immediately lose the independent persona that I’ve established for myself. Within minutes, my petite mother is teaching me how to drive on the Deerfoot and my dad can’t understand why I’m using my phone to find a truck that apparently serves food. It’s not that I don’t enjoy my parents visiting, because I do. I love how my list of things I wish I had for my apartment gets shorter and shorter with every generous trip to the IKEA, and having

Kids’ safety at issue. Court action mulled to halt LRT extension opening Legal action could be taken to halt the launch of a northeast LRT line extension that some parents have said is too close to their homes and puts their kids at risk. Ald. Jim Stevenson said the Martindale Community Association is exploring a court injunction to prevent the line’s planned opening near the end of August. “Obviously, that will be up to them,” Stevenson said. “We will be doing a lot of safety work with the community on this.... A lot of it will likely be done through the schools.”

During a visit to the Martindale community last October, parents told Metro they feared for their children’s safety, pointing to one surface-crossing on Martindale Boulevard as a particular area of concern. Members with the community association could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday evening. Calgary Transit did conduct a safety audit of the LRT extension and a spokesperson said last year that the community had long been consulted on plans for the line. Jeremy Nolais/metro

She has caught the attention of the opposite sex by crashing into shopping carts, making routine trips to Canadian Tire and randomly staring at fellow caffeine fiends in coffee shops for hours. But Jessica Hoy, a 25-year-old nurse from Red Deer, has no interest in finding a soulmate. Instead, what started as a dare from a friend has morphed into a year-long social experiment and increasingly popular blog. “I want to be in a missed connection on Kijiji,” Hoy explained bluntly. “That’s it.” The missed-connections area on the popular classifiedads site serves as a dating personal area of sorts.

Finding a family doctor in Calgary just got easier. Thanks to a recent expansion of the family-medicine residency training program through the University of Calgary’s faculty of medicine and Alberta Health Services, 8,000 new patients can now access a family doctor. “We will be putting out about 100 new family doctors every year,” said Dr. Dennis Kreptul, interim head of the family-medicine department at the University of Calgary. “That is a big change from what we were seeing even

three to four years ago.” This program is made possible through funding from the Alberta government, and the money has gone to the clinics to hire more family doctors who are able to accept new patients. “With these new clinics and these new patients, it provides

me with ample opportunity to practise medicine and to be as competent and as confident ... a practising physician as I can be,” said Dr. Tammy Bach, a first-year family-medicine resident. “They are very innovative in terms of how they create their curriculum and it is a very good fit for my learning style.” In addition to family doctors, the clinics also have other health-care workers on site, including nutritionists, pharmacists, psychologists and chroniccare nurses. Prospective patients can contact one of two teaching clinics downtown at the Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre or the Sunridge location in the northeast, just south of the Peter Lougheed Centre. A third location in the far southeast is expected to open in the future as well.

Iran holds Syria conference as regime fights off rebel push Call it dialogue. Allies stand together amid international pressure for Assad to step down As Syrian forces struggled to drive rebels from the country’s largest city, the regime’s key ally Iran tried Thursday to start an alternative political process to address the crisis. Iran gathered an array of

nations ranging from strong supporters of Damascus to far-flung nations a world away from the Syrian civil war. The one-day forum is unlikely to result in any international consensus, but it shows Iran’s resolve to stand by President Bashar Assad as his forces try to crush the 17-month-old uprising. On Thursday, Syrian rebels said they were low on ammunition but still managed to put up resistance against a regime

ground offensive in the city of Aleppo, a centre of fighting for more than two weeks. Tehran billed Thursday’s conference as a way to focus on dialogue — an alternative to Western-led initiatives that call for Assad to give up power. Iran has said in the past that the Syrian regime’s critics fail to take into account violence by the rebels. “Iran is against the killing of unarmed people and citizens by any side,” Iranian For-

eign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said at the gathering. He also warned that sending weapons to the opposition will only fuel the crisis, and he accused rebels of using civilians as “human shields.” Russia in the past has urged the West to allow Tehran to take part in international discussions on how to settle the Syrian crisis, arguing that the Islamic republic could play an important role. Moscow has been the main protector

and ally of Assad’s regime, shielding it from UN sanctions during the uprising that has evolved into a civil war. The U.S. dismissed the Iranian gathering. “It’s just hard for us to imagine that after putting so much effort into keeping Assad in power ... how they (Iran) can be a constructive actor in facilitating a political solution to the crisis,” a State Department spokesman said.

Conference attendees • Iran said some 30

countries attended the meeting, including Russia and China, as well as far-off Benin, Cuba and Mauritania.

• Most countries

were represented at the ambassador level.

Bosnia. Wildfires set off blast in old minefield; more explosions feared As firefighters tried to contain two wildfires near an ammunition factory in southern Bosnia on Thursday, one of the blazes began setting off explosions in a minefield left over from the country’s war in the 1990s, officials said. No one was injured, but the risks of entering the minefield

and heavy winds were making it difficult for the firefighters and several military helicopters assisting them to battle the two blazes in the populated area. This summer has been one of the hottest on record in Bosnia, and it hasn’t rained for two months. the associated press

Nagasaki anniversary shines a light on nuclear energy A woman and a boy pray next to lanterns along a river, paying tribute to the victims of the atomic bombing in Nagasaki, Japan, Thursday.

Japanese officials have pledged to seek a society less reliant on nuclear energy as the country marks the 67th anniversary of the atomic bombing. kyodo news/the associated press

Surveillance testing

Must pass pregnancy test. U.S. school changes rule after it’s said to have violated law A U.S. school is changing a policy that kicked pregnant students out of class and required them to be taught at home, the school’s board chairman said Wednesday. No one at Delhi Charter School in rural Louisiana realized there was anything wrong with the policy until the American Civil Liberties Union’s state chapter threatened to sue, said chairman Albert Christman. The policy has gotten “everybody up in a roar,” he said. The school required students who were suspected of being pregnant to take a pregnancy test. If they refused, or tested positive, they had to be home-schooled. The ACLU said the policy violated Title IX of the 1972 federal education law, which requires equal opportunities for both sexes. Too many schools do not realize pregnant students should receive equal treatment, the National Women’s Law Center said in a June report. “Despite enormous advances for women and girls in education since 1972, schools

Balloons inflate border-patrol agents’ hopes Something new will soon be floating in the skies above the Texas-Mexico border as federal authorities test balloon-like military surveillance devices to see if they might help with border monitoring.

He could not say how many there would be nor how long testing would last. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

• Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women’s Law Center said she had never seen a school policy “that said you must take a pregnancy test in order to attend school. Or one that pushes, so overtly, students out.” • Albert Christman, the Delhi school board chairman, said “just a handful” of students were affected by the policy, which dates to 2006.

across the country continue to bar pregnant and parenting students from activities, kick them out of school, pressure them to attend alternative programs, and penalize them for pregnancy-related absences,” the law centre said in the report. Louisiana Department of Education spokesman Barry Landry said he did not know the state’s policies for pregnant students. the associated press

Russia. PM says someone must take rap for latest bungled space launch Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday that this week’s failed space launch has dented the nation’s prestige and that those to blame must be held responsible. A Proton-M booster rocket launched Monday failed to place two communications satellites into target orbits, a mishap that followed several other botched launches. An official investigation is underway. Medvedev said Thursday the failure could have been caused by “traditional sloppiness.” He says he will chair a government meeting next week to look into the case and name those responsible for the failure. “We can’t tolerate that any longer,” Medvedev said at the start of a Cabinet session. “We are losing our prestige and billions of rubles.” Russia’s space program has suffered a series of humiliating failures blamed on manufacturing flaws and engineering mistakes. They included the loss of a robotic probe designed to

Wounded prestige

Officials said the failed launches were rooted in the post-Soviet industrial meltdown that has badly hurt a once-proud space program, stymying its modernization. Despite a steady increase of funding thanks to oil revenues, Russia’s space industries continue to rely on outdated equipment and an aging workforce, and quality standards have degraded.

NASA’s photo-snapping rover Curiosity at work on Mars Curiosity returned another postcard from Mars as it begins a two-year mission. This image provided on Thursday by NASA shows a portion of the first 360-degree colour panorama of the Gale Crater. The panorama was stitched together using thumbnail images taken by the rover’s mast camera. Curiosity landed in Gale Crater last Sunday, Aug. 5. The craft is the most complex such rover ever designed, and NASA says it’s behaving “basically flawlessly.”

• Recent failures followed other botched launches. Russia lost three navigation satellites in 2010, a military satellite in 2011 and a telecommunications satellite that year.

Suspect in hammer attack may have given fake identity When a Spanish tourist was abruptly pummelled in the head by a hammer-wielding stranger on a park bench last week in New York City, there seemed to be little mystery about who attacked him — a suspect was arrested nearby and confessed, authorities said. But now the case may not be so straightforward: Prosecutors are investigating whether the suspect gave authorities a phoney name after a chess master in Canada told them he believes the man is using his identity. At the moment, the suspect is being held without bail on attempted murder and other charges relating to the hammer attack. He hasn’t been charged with any other crime. The Manhattan district attorney’s office is looking into the false-identity allegation, a person familiar with the case said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The Legal Aid Society, which is representing the suspect, had no immediate comment. The tourist, Hugo Ale-

jandre of Barcelona, was eating lunch with his girlfriend in a park near city hall on July 30 when a man sitting next to them pulled out a hammer and started bashing Alejandre on the head and back with it, prosecutors said. Bystanders ultimately wrestled the tool away. Alejandre was treated for a spinal fracture and deep cuts, prosecutors said. The chess player, John C. Yoos, 43, of Vancouver, says he knew nothing about the attack until a friend contacted him Monday after seeing a news report about it. The friend thought it was a coincidence that a man of Yoos’ same name and age had been arrested in New York, Yoos said in a phone interview Tuesday. He looked at photos accompanying news stories

about the attack, recognized the suspect as an acquaintance from years ago and started calling authorities. “It’s a little bit disconcerting because, obviously, it’s been widely reported. It’s my name and my age on it,” he said by phone. “I’d be very happy if this was clarified soon — that this is not, in fact, me.” At an arraignment last week, Legal Aid lawyer Alyssa Gamliel said the suspect had only one prior, minor brush with the law, involving an unpaid fine in Hawaii in 2008. Honolulu court records show an April 2008 jaywalking case against a man who gave Yoos’ name and birth date; he gave police an address in Haiku, Hawaii. He was fined an as-yet-unpaid $100 US, court records show. the associated press

B.C. Court backs probe of police conduct after pregnant woman’s death Two Vancouver police officers who decided not to warn a pregnant woman about a tip that someone was plotting to kill her in the days before she was murdered have lost a court attempt to block an investigation into their conduct. Det. Const. Craig Bentley and Staff Sgt. John Grywinski were working on the region’s integrated gang task force in 2005 when Bentley received a tip that someone was attempting to hire a hitman to kill 21-year-old Tasha Rosette. The B.C. Supreme Court heard Bentley told Grywinski, his supervisor, but the pair

decided to further investigate the tip rather than warn Rosette. Five days later, Rosette was found stabbed to death outside the door of her apartment in Surrey, southeast of Vancouver. She was stabbed 40 times and her throat was slashed. Her boyfriend, Amjad Khan, and his alleged accomplice, Naim Mohammed Saghir, were later convicted of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, though the province’s Appeal Court overturned those convictions last year and ordered a new trial. the canadian press

He said it would be introduced first in poor neighbourhoods with high dropout rates. He said teachers wouldn’t be forced to work an extra hour. Those who choose to, he said, would get a pay raise. Legault said the plan would have to be negotiated with teachers’ unions. For their part, the governing Liberals accuse the Coalition of making promises it can’t afford with its cocktail of tax cuts and spending pledges. the canadian press Victoria to Winnipeg

Uruguayan plan. Legal market for marijuana could hit opposition A plan by Uruguay’s leaders to turn the government into the nation’s marijuana dealer has been presented to Congress, where the idea faces an uncertain fate. President Jose Mujica’s entire Cabinet signed onto the proposed law, which aims to take over an illegal marijuana trafficking business estimated to be worth $30 million to $40 million a year. The law would have government control marijuana imports, production, sale and distribution, creating a legal market for people to get pot without turning to riskier illegal drugs. The text submitted to Congress on WednesArgentina

Mujica has said he’ll push the plan only if it gets at least 60 per cent support in polls. An official in the president’s press office, speaking on condition of anonymity according to department policy, said the bill isn’t expected to advance quickly.

When “The Worm Eater” and his sidekick “The Rat” were captured, they were allegedly carrying five grenades and about $1 million in cash. “Garbage” was caught extorting money from Mexico City bus drivers, police say. “The Pig” was known for his brutal style of killing rivals. “The Bum” allegedly burned and buried his victims in clandestine pits. As Mexico’s drug violence gets bloodier, with cartels competing to leave ever-bigger piles of slaughtered victims, drug traffickers are being tagged with ever-grittier, low-brow nicknames to reflect their impersonal, almost industrial style of violence. Gone are the days of highflying sobriquets such as “The King” (Jesus Zambada Garcia), “The Lord of the Skies” (Amado Carrillo Fuentes) or

“The Boss of Bosses” (Arturo Beltran Leyva), all of whom are dead or in prison. Midlevel cartel leaders are now adopting or being baptized with nicknames such as “The Dog Killer.” That was Baltazar Saucedo Estrada, an alleged leader of the notoriously bloodthirsty Zetas gang. Experts say the killings and arrests of top cartel capos have left lesser spawn to run the drug, kidnapping and extortion businesses; that has fueled a cruder approach and a psychopathic, massdismemberment style of killing. Instead of offing rivals for turf or cash, many of today’s narco-killers, especially among the Zetas, view their ultraviolence as a part of business, designed to shock the public into submission. “What we’re seeing today is a different kind of nickname, that reflects a different way of criminals identifying themselves, and these new forms of violence,” said Martin Barron, an expert in criminology at Mexico’s National Institute for Penal Sciences.

U.S. begins Agent Orange chemical cleanup in Vietnam The plan. 73,000 cubic metres of soil will be heated to 335 C to break down the dioxin into oxygen, carbon dioxide and other harmless substances The United States began a landmark project Thursday to clean up a dangerous chemical left from the defoliant Agent Orange — 50 years after American planes first sprayed it on Vietnam’s jungles to destroy enemy cover. Dioxin, which has been linked to cancer, birth defects and other disabilities, will be removed from the site of a former U.S. air base in DanChina scandal

Closely watched murder trial ends Testimony in the messiest scandal China’s Communist leadership has faced in two decades wrapped up within hours Thursday as the wife of disgraced politician Bo Xilai stood accused of luring British businessman and close family associate Neil Heywood to a hotel, getting him drunk and pouring poison into his mouth. Gu Kailai was tried with a household aide. They did not contest the murder charges. A guilty verdict is all but assured and could carry a death sentence. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ang in central Vietnam. The effort is seen as a long-overdue step toward removing a thorn in relations between the former foes nearly four decades after the Vietnam War ended. The $43-million joint project with Vietnam is expected to be completed in four years on the 19-hectare contaminated site, now an active Vietnamese military base near Danang’s commercial airport. The work begins as Vietnam and the U.S. forge closer ties to boost trade and counter China’s rising influence in the disputed South China Sea that’s believed rich in oil and natural resources. The U.S. says protecting peace and freedom of navigation in the sea is in its national interest. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The issue

The U.S. military dumped some 75 million litres of Agent Orange and other herbicides on about a quarter of former South Vietnam between 1962 and 1971, decimating about 2 million hectares of forest — roughly the size of Massachusetts. • The Agent Orange

issue has continued to blight the U.S.-Vietnam relationship because dioxin can linger in the environment for decades, entering the food supply through the fat of fish and other animals.

Rain. Philippine capital cleans up after deluge Thousands of Filipinos shovelled muck and debris from flood-ravaged homes, shops and roads under a shining sun Thursday after nearly two weeks of non-stop rain shut down the capital and forced hundreds of thousands to flee from the deluge. At least 49 people died and over two million people were affected by Manila’s worst flooding since 2009. More than half of the sprawling metropolis of 12 million was submerged at the peak, and schools and offices have been closed for days. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dry summer brings out bears United States. Vermont Worst U.S. drought “The farmers are going in years causes close to have a tougher time encounters as bears with bears.” search for food; greens Forrest Hammond of the Vermont Departof Fish and Wildlife, which has warned and berries shrivelled ment farmers to bring their corn crops in ASAP With their normal summer diet of greens and berries shrivelled by the worst U.S. drought in decades, hungry bears are rummaging through people’s garbage, ripping through home screens and crawling into cars in search of food. In northern New York state, a black bear clawed through the wall of a candy store on Main Street last week. Another locked itself in a minivan and shredded the interior in a frantic struggle to escape, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. “We’ve been here 17 years and never had a problem with bears,” said Roslyn Starer, who runs the Candy Cottage in Old Forge. “But it’s been so dry the normal foods in the woods

just aren’t growing. So they’re coming into town.” In eastern Kentucky, the U.S. Forest Service closed two campgrounds for a weekend at the end of July because of bears raiding picnic baskets and coolers. Biologists blamed the drought-related berry shortage. In Colorado, where drought has dried up the berries bears rely on, a bear and three cubs broke into more than a dozen cars in the resort town of Aspen looking for food in June. A surveillance camera in a candy store in Estes Park, Colo., showed a bear making seven trips inside for candy in 15 minutes. A bear that broke into homes there last month was killed because it posed a danger to people, one official said.

Weather-related bear problems are nothing new, as natural food supplies vary from year to year depending on rainfall and other factors. But this summer has been a particularly busy one, wildlife biologists in New York

said. “In multiple communities, bears have gotten into people’s homes, in some cases even when people were at home,” said Jeremy Hurst, a big-game biologist with the New York state Department

of Environmental Conservation. “Half a dozen to a dozen bears have been euthanized. More have been trapped and relocated.” No human injuries have been reported in New York this year.

Bears typically turn to hard foods such as acorns and beechnuts in the fall to bulk up for winter. A cold snap in April that damaged a lot of fruit tree buds may have affected acorns and other wild nuts. the associated press

Wallenda walks above the beach in Atlantic City

For Wallenda, it was on other in a long line of deaththe tightrope he traversed defying feats. In June, he walked farther some 30 metres above the — and higher up — over Nibeach. “It felt really slippery,” he agara Falls. This time, though, he was said. So slippery that he considered doing the 396-metre unharnessed as seagulls flew by, a couple of banner-pullwalk barefoot. But ultimately, Wallenda ing planes zipped around, decided to keep on the buck- boats came to shore so their skin and suede shoes his occupants could watch and mother made him, and he all eyes on the beach — save completed the walk without those of a few diligent lifeguards — were looking at any real difficulties. T:10” For Wallenda, a member Wallenda high above.

Local officials estimated that 150,000 people saw him make the half-hour stroll, step by careful step, in person. The high-wire stroll was expected to be a boon for Atlantic City and the Tropicana Casino & Resort, which put it on. The crowd got a preview of the Wallenda Family Experience show opening at the casino on Sunday and the city got a spectacle of the sort it wants as it continues to deal with declining gambling revenue.

No harness, no net

Where this walk ranks among his greatest hits? A diplomatic dodge: “I’ll always remember this walk because of the crowd that turned up, that beautiful boardwalk and the sand.” • That helicopter buzzing overhead? Not an annoyance at all, he said at a press conference. • The wind gusts of 32 km/h? No big deal.

Comedian Stephen Colbert ruffles Wikipedia’s feathers Reaction. Website protects possible U.S. vice-presidential candidates’ pages after Stephen Colbert urges viewers to make edits Wikipedia has protected the pages of possible Republican vice-presidential candidates thanks to meddling by Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, according to the political and technology website TechPresident. The Wikipedia page entries of several candidates are now “semi-protected” and revisions can only be made by established users of the free crowdsourced encyclopedia. Colbert picked up the item on Fox News stating there was a jump in revisions to Sarah Palin’s pages in 2008 prior to her becoming the VP candidate. There was speculation that the same thing might happen this time with the Republican nominee for vice-president.

Lack of action

“It’s the August doldrums in American politics at the moment because of the Olympics. Not much else can happen before the convention other than Romney’s VP.” Micah Sifry, Head of TechPresident

Colbert urged viewers to go to the pages of Tim Pawlenty, Rob Portman, Paul Ryan, Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie and David Petraeus and make as many edits as possible. The theory came from a report by Micah Sifry, head of TechPresident. Sifry remembered the odd correlation in updates in Palin’s and Joe Biden’s Wikipedia pages in 2008 and was interested to see if there would be revisions this time. He posted a story on the theory on his website on Monday. “I thought what’s the harm.... I had no idea it would blow up.” torstar news service

Kidnapping. Man pleads guilty to boy’s killing A man accused in the horrific abduction and dismemberment of an eight-year-old boy from a tight-knit Orthodox Jewish community in New York pleaded guilty on Thursday — a deal that will put him behind bars for at least 40 years and avoid a heart-wrenching trial. District Attorney Charles Hynes made the arrangement in close consultation with the family of the boy, Leiby Kletzky. Levi Aron, a 36-yearold hardware store clerk, made a plea to charges of seconddegree murder and kidnapping. He originally had faced a first-degree murder charge. The family was “eager to see this concluded and (is) grateful to D.A. Hynes,” Assemblyman Dov Hikind said in a statement. “The last thing they want is to relive the horror of losing their child.” One of the city’s most gruesome crimes in recent memory began with a chance encounter last summer on the streets of Borough Park. The victim got lost on his walk home and asked Aron for help, prosecutors said. the associated press

Face-chewer ‘ripped me to ribbons’: Victim Investigation. Ronald Poppo tells police his attacker was acting nice before turning ‘berserk’ A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre assault alongside a busy Florida highway told police that his attacker “just ripped me to ribbons.” In a recorded interview

with investigators, Ronald Poppo said the man who approached him at first seemed friendly. Then the man, Rudy Eugene, seemed to become angry about something that had happened on Miami Beach, where thousands were partying through the holiday weekend in late May. “For a while he was acting nice. Then he got flustered. He probably remembered something that happened

on the beach and was not happy about it,” Poppo said in the interview that was taped July 19 and first reported Wednesday by Miami news station WFOR-TV. Poppo said Eugene “turned berserk” and attacked with his bare hands, screaming that both men would die. “He just ripped me to ribbons. He chewed up my face. He plucked out my eyes. Basically, that’s all there is

to say about it,” Poppo said. Eugene, 31, was shot and killed by a Miami police officer during the attack. Lab tests found only marijuana in his system. Poppo, 65, remains in a long-term-care facility after losing an eye, his eyebrows, his nose and parts of his forehead and right cheek in the May 26 attack. His other eye was severely damaged. Poppo recalled Eugene telling him that his Bible

was stolen in Miami Beach and that Poppo was the one who took it. Poppo said he told Eugene he did not have anything, had not been to Miami Beach and “did not antagonize the offender in any way.” Eugene’s family has said they can’t explain his bizarre behaviour. They described him as a mild-mannered and religious person who smoked marijuana.

Florida shooter to use ‘stand your ground’ law against murder charge The U.S. man charged in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen that led to national protests will try to have the murder charge dismissed under Florida’s “stand your ground” self-defence law, his attorney said Thursday. George Zimmerman, a neighbourhood-watch volunteer, shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin after a confrontation in Zimmerman’s gated community, where Martin was visiting. The hearing, which likely won’t take place for several months, will amount to a minitrial involving much of the evidence collected by prosecutors as well as expert testimony from both sides. Legal experts say it’s likely that Zimmerman himself would testify since he is the sole survivor of the Feb. 26 confrontation. Janet Johnson, a Jacksonville defence attorney who has represented defendants

Stand your ground

Under the “stand your ground” law, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester can dismiss the charges if Zimmerman conclusively shows he fatally shot Martin because he “reasonably believed” he might be killed or suffer “great bodily harm” at the hands of the unarmed teenager.

Google hit with $22.5M privacy fine

Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. the associated press file

Record penalty. Tech giant to pay up to settle regulatory case with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission Google is paying a $22.5-million US fine to settle the latest regulatory case questioning the Internet search leader’s respect for people’s privacy and the integrity of its internal controls. The penalty announced Thursday by the Federal Trade Commission matches the figure reported by The Associated Press and other media outlets last month. It’s the most that the FTC has ever fined a company for a civil violation. The rebuke resolves the FTC’s allegations that Google duped millions of Web surfers who use Apple’s Safari browser. Google had assured people that it wouldn’t monitor their online activities, as long as

they didn’t change the browser settings to permit the tracking. Google broke that promise, according to the FTC, by creating a technological loophole that enabled the company’s DoubleClick advertising network to shadow unwitting Safari users. That tracking gave DoubleClick a better handle on what kinds of marketing pitches to show them. The FTC concluded that the contradiction between Google’s stealth tracking and its privacy assurances to Safari users violated a vow that the company made in another settlement with the agency in October. The latest settlement doesn’t affect a separate FTC inquiry over whether Google has been abusing its dominant position in Internet search to highlight its own services over rivals and drive up online advertising prices. The settlement also doesn’t come with any admission of wrongdoing from Google. the associated press

Tech. Facebook launches email to report scams Facebook has created an email address for people to report scams. The address is phish@ fb.com. Anyone — even those who aren’t on Facebook — can use it to report malicious emails that pretend to come from Facebook. Known as phishing, such emails attempt to get passwords and other information by pretending to come from a legitimate business.

Facebook says scams tend to contain information that’s more vague than what’s in legitimate emails from the social-networking site. Facebook says it will report scams to outside security companies and notify blacklists that Internet companies keep to block malicious websites. It will also prevent users from posting such links on Facebook. the associated press

Just like us. A study published this week requiring wild hyenas in Kenya to slide open a bolt latch to get a piece of meat showed that only nine out of 62 hyenas succeeded by using their teeth or flipping the box. This is a huge coup for the science community, which spent countless grant dollars to show that if we ever encounter hyenas, we must pray that it’s one of the dumb or lazy ones. Second-chance Chuck.

Todd R. Forsgren

Behind the photos

Bird photography

Shock value inside ‘Birds in nets’ art Looking at these birds haplessly caught in nets is bound to ruffle a few feathers. But in truth these creatures are unharmed in what is a research process used by biologists. Todd Forsgren’s provocative images are from a series on mist nets, which ornithologists have used for years to measure and record birds.1|16

• Definition. Mist nets are used by ornithologists for data that cannot be obtained by using binoculars or microphones. They “function as huge spider webs, catching unsuspecting birds,” Forsgren, shown above, says on his website. The scientist carefully removes the bird from the net. The bird is then measured, aged, sexed and banded with an individually numbered anklet before it is released back into the wild, unharmed.

• Inspiration. Forsgren’s photographs were inspired by the work of pioneering bird enthusiasts: painter John James Audubon and ornithologist Roger Tory Peterson.

“I spent days studying and trying to emulate Peterson and Audubon as a bird-watching teenager,” Forsgren said. “John James Audubon’s Birds of America, and Roger Tory Peterson’s Field Guide to the Birds of Eastern and Central North America were the first pieces of artwork I loved.” • On critics. Despite the value of data from mist-net usage, Forsgren understands there will always be detractors of the technique: “For some viewers, no amount of discussion can convince them that the good this contributes to bird populations justifies an hour or two of stress on individual birds.”

• For science. Forsgren explains the significance, rather than the tragedy, of getting birds tangled in nets. “Most people think the images are tragic if they’re not familiar with the mist-netting and bird-banding,” he said in an interview with art print website 20x200. “But I hope that they’ll come to understand the valuable information that biologists can collect using these techniques.”

Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy. SUBMITTED Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Bourne delivers on action, not on plot Richard: Mark, why they didn’t call this movie Bourne Again, I’ll never know. Jason Bourne may not make an appearance, but it feels like a movie we’ve seen before — the same shaky camera and frenetic action. The only thing that’s changed is that while there’s a fair amount of CIA superspy gobbledygook, it’s surprisingly light on plot. For a movie about the deepest, darkest workings of secret government agencies the story is really rather simple.

ventional car chases and the like. Superior acting lifts this movie above the run of the mill CIA stuff. Do you think Jeremy Renner was up to the task? Or should we lobby to bring back Matt Damon?

RC: I liked Renner, but I loved Damon in the role. I enjoyed Renner’s performance in The Hurt Locker, but I wonder if he has the stuff to carry a movie on his own. He can run, jump and shoot with the best of them, but I was hoping for more charisma. When he’s Mark: It’s just another chase not in motion chasing after a movie, although they try to bad guy or wrestling a wolf, I disguise it with pseudoscien- found him kind of flat.

it was nice to see Ed Norton working again, and some of the small tense roles handled so well by the cast of wellchosen character actors. I liked the slow build of the first 30 minutes, I thought the editing and crosscutting was masterful, and the shootout set piece in the old house was so well done I felt I was right there in that house with the actors. But what’s with bringing in the hit man at the end of the movie? How many times have we seen that cliché? Or the extended car chase — a non-thrilla in Manila? And don’t even get me started on the ending! RC: The last 30 seconds felt more like a door slamming shut than an ending. MB: You know what they say: When a door slams shut, a window opens onto a sequel.

Synopsis

Dovetailing the story from The Bourne Ultimatum, the new film begins with Jason Bourne’s appearance in Manhattan outing the CIA’s Treadstone/Operation Outcome unit. Before a Senate committee can unearth info on the genetic experiments they conducted on their agents, head honcho Eric Byer (Edward Norton) orders all agents neutralized (assassinated). Among the targets is Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), a highly skilled operative who requires chemical enhancement to stay in peak killing form. •

It may be political satire but there isn’t a whole lot of effectual social commentary in The Campaign. Instead, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis star as two moronic politicians who relentlessly compete for election votes through everything from sex tape campaign ads to inadvertently punching babies. The inconsistent but engrossing gags only drive any serious political points into the muck. Steve Gow

Streep’s Kay, 30 years married and five years untouched, is optimistic that she can save her relationship, despite evidence to the contrary. Her husband Arnold (Jones) has mossed over emotionally and sexually, content to live a cold, separate life. He grudgingly acquiesces to therapy but deflects Dr. Feld’s (Carell) advice. The film forgoes histrionics for emotional realism as only these pros can deliver. anne brodie

Lundgren lured back to Expendables cast because his role is ‘fun’ to play Character written specifically for him. Veteran action star sees a lot of himself and his own past in his expanded role

Time to heal

Grieving Stallone stays home

NED EHRBAR

scene@metronews.ca

It’s no secret that ’80s action film star Dolph Lundgren also has a degree in chemical engineering and gave up a Fullbright scholarship to MIT to become a bodyguard for Grace Jones and eventually an actor. By complete coincidence, in The Expendables 2 we learn that his mercenary character, Gunnar, gave up studying chemical engineering at MIT to become a bouncer at a club and shack up with an exotic girlfriend. How convenient. Whose idea was it to make your character’s backstory your own backstory? That was (Sylvester) Stallone. I had reservations about the original script on the second (movie). My character had been so fun to play in the first one. That was the reason I did the movie, and it felt like everyone seemed happy with it. Then in the second one, my character was just like a regular guy in the back with the rest of them, like, “Hey, can I throw a grenade? Can I kill someone, please?” And I didn’t like that. I didn’t want to make the picture — actually, I did turn it down. So then Stallone kind of came to me and said, “I’m going to think of something,” and he came up with a couple of ideas. This was one. Did you have a say in exactly how much his story matches yours? It was all in there. I was a bouncer, and it had to do with

Sylvester Stallone (centre) managed to overcome initial reluctance by Dolph Lundgren (far right) to be in The Expendables 2 by customizing his role. handout

Grace (Jones) — he fell in love with some girl who dances at a disco, which is kind of like Grace and the whole thing, right? Look, Sly made a career out of making his whole life into movies and it worked for him, so I did a little bit for me, I guess, and I guess it worked pretty well.

at the panel with Arnold and Stallone, and you just don’t say a word because what are you going to do? These guys are so famous that they’re like almost beyond famous. Anybody can do their voice, everybody knows them in the whole world — in the fricking jungles of Malaysia, even.

is how do you give 10 co-stars enough screen time for them not to get upset or feel like they’re getting lost — or for the audience to get their dose of Chuck (Norris) or whoever they want to see, Dolph Lund­ gren or Terry Crews or Stallone — well, Stallone gets a lot of screen time (laughs).

Was it common for you guys to slip in Stallone impressions on set when he wasn’t around? Yeah, and the Arnold (Schwarzenegger) one, too. “I’ll be back” (laughs). I was at Comic-Con with them, and you’re sitting

When you’re bringing in all these new characters, beefing up the cast, is there a worry that you’re going to get crowded it out? Yes, I think it weighs on you incredibly. Part of the filmmakers’ and the writers’ task

How have things changed for you since the first Expendables? Well, it’s changed in many ways. It’s strange, because I think back on my life, and you have certain years you remember, like when I moved from

Sweden to Australia. I remember when Rocky 4 came out, that was a big year. Then I had the year I got married. And then in 2010, Expendables came out, I got divorced, I moved back to L.A., I met my current girlfriend, I did this Eurovision Song Contest thing in Sweden where the Swedes instead of thinking I was this idiot who went to America and became famous and hates Sweden and basically was something to make fun of, they started accepting me and treating me well. So Expendables was part of that mix. Somehow it all happened around the same time.

The cast of The Expendables 2 say they’re giving Sylvester Stallone space after the death of his son last month. Stallone’s 36-year-old son Sage died on July 13 in his Los Angeles home — a day after Stallone was joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger and other Expendables stars at Comic-Con in San Diego. “Something like that is so severe. You can’t really do anything. I sent him a handwritten note. I contributed to a charity for his kid,” said Dolph Lundgren, one of the stars of the film, which opens Aug. 17. “He knows we’re thinking about him,” Lundgren said at a recent media event for the film. “He knows us. He knows our prayers go out to him. But what are you going to do? I have two kids. And all you can do is hug your kids and go thank God it didn’t happen to you.” Stallone has not made any public appearances since his son’s untimely death. His publicist said in a statement that the star was “devastated and grief-stricken.” Sage Moonblood Stallone was the oldest of Sylvester Stallone’s children and co-starred with his father in two films: 1990’s Rocky V and 1996’s Daylight.

Anna Kendrick won role on her talent, not rep Role in ParaNorman. Producers had no idea she was one of the stars of Twilight, just liked the way she sounded and acted NED EHRBAR

scene@metronews.ca

Anna Kendrick assumed she

got her part in ParaNorman — as the title character’s obnoxious older sister — because of her work in the Twilight series. But that wasn’t exactly the case. Luckily, the Oscarnominated actress knows how to take even the most awkward of compliments. When you’re cast to do a voice for a character some could describe as annoying, how do you take that? Well, it was funny because

actually I had assumed this was the first job offer I’d ever gotten because of Twilight. Because everything else is Anna Kendrick sort of based Getty images on Rocket Science or Up in the Air — and now 50/50 and so on and so forth. This is such a different charac-

ter that I thought this has to be based on my character in Twilight. I asked them about it, and they said they’d never seen Twilight and they just heard my voice in an interview and thought it would be good, and I was like, “I don’t know how to take that at all. Thank you, I think?” You know, I was like playfully offended. Did you make it up to the Laika studio in Oregon?

All my (voice recording) sessions were in L.A., but I did make a special trip up to Laika just to see the sets, and I saw them when they were being taken apart so I got to kind of walk around in them, and that was really special. So I did miss seeing something actually filmed, which was disappointing, but all the other actors were jealous that I got to walk through and take pictures, like, inside the set — as a 50-foot woman. Did you take anything with you, like slip a tree in your pocket or something? Oh, no. I considered it, but I thought I’d get in trouble. They gave me a mini bust of Courtney, which is hilarious because she’s so silly, and to have this really stately bust of her on my bookshelf is great. She’s got a lot of ... physicality to work with. It’s like she’s a force of nature in a moody, volatile, teenage way. After starting in theatre,

you made your move to film with the Camp almost 10 years ago. That was a really special first experience to have, and I’m really glad that it worked out that way because I think if I’d been plopped into a normal film set, I think I would’ve been utterly bewildered and terrified. The fact that it was about musical theatre and we were all first-time film actors just made it a really easy environment to ask questions and understand the process of filmmaking, and I think it really made me embrace filmmaking and the physical limitations of filmmaking as a kind of challenge. And I’ve seen a lot of actors get really frustrated and angry when they realize they can’t do what they thought they were going to do because, you know, you’re going to be out of frame, dude. I’ve watched actors become instantly jaded by that, as though this isn’t really art. But to me it just felt like it’s just a new art form.

Laika Studios’ ParaNorman is a stop-action animated comedy about a lonely little boy who just happens to be able to speak with the dead. Handout

Jordin Sparks takes on acting fearlessly Stars in Sparkle. Young singer begins movie career in musical with the late legendary diva Whitney Houston

If we’re going to go way back, my dad played football. And I’ve always kind of compared everything to the sports world. Like there’s always somebody who’s going to be coming up who’s more talented or faster or stronger or something like that. There’s always going to be somebody who’s waiting in the wings to take your place or sing right alongside you. So I always had that mindset because of my dad, and I applied that to Idol as well.

NED EHRBAR

scene@metronews.ca

Before we can start the interview, something white and fluffy rushes by my leg. “That’s Minnie, she’s my dog,” Jordin Sparks offers apologetically. “She got into a cup of coffee, so we want to watch her real quick for a little bit. She’s kind of walking sideways slightly, but she’ll be fine.” That’s just one more thing for Sparks to keep track of as the American Idol champ launches her first major foray into acting with Sparkle, the girl-group drama that had her going toe-to-toe with Whitney Houston. What was your mind-frame going into the audition process as an actress for the first time? Before I auditioned I was thinking, whoever gets this part it’s going to be really special. I was reading it going, “This is great, this is really incredible.” And then at the same time I was like, “Well, I haven’t read very many scripts so how do I know the difference between something that’s great and something that’s not?” My mindset when I went in to audition was there’s a very real chance that you couldn’t get this

part, but if you do, run with it. Just go, run with it, don’t question it. But questions and doubt always creep in. Once I did get it, I was just like, OK, so they believe in me. They see something that I can’t see yet, so obviously I’m here for a reason if all of them collectively thought I was good for the part. And I was just like, OK let’s do this. I cannot be horrible if Whitney’s playing my mom, so I better step it up somehow. I take it you’ve read more scripts now. Have you gotten any bad ones? Um ... well, I mean I haven’t read a ton of them. There are some that are kind of ... I got one for a slapstick horror movie, and I read that and I enjoyed it because I enjoy a kooky movie from time to time, but I was like, “Hmm ...” That mindset of “I might not get it” is pretty mature and realistic. How do you get that balance?

How do you think Mariah Carey will do as a judge on American Idol? I’ve listened to Mariah Carey since I was in my mother’s stomach, so I am a huge fan of her and her voice and her music. I feel like Mariah started out pretty young and she’s grown up in the spotlight and industry. She’s had her ups and downs, she’s had high-profile relationships, she’s had all this stuff happen, and I think the fact that on Idol you have such a huge age range that she’s able to hit each thing that each contestant might come up with. I’m excited to see what she does, and I’m also excited to see who else they bring in.

A ‘pre-wedding’ gift worth $370K Brad Pitt is apparently making the most of his engagement to Angelina Jolie. The actor reportedly purchased a $370,000 Patek Philippe

According to gossip blog Celebrity Dirty Laundry, the actress is dating her former X Files costar, the recently officially single David Duchovny. Sources tell the site they “have been in a serious relationship for some time now,” and that Anderson and her children have already moved in with Duchovny in Los Angeles. Before you X Files fans get too excited, a word from Duchovny’s rep: “It is not true,” he says in a terse statement. The thing is, we should probably believe him. But on behalf of all the Scully and Mulder goldfish couples out there, we’re not giving up hope just yet.

watch for Jolie as a lavish “prewedding present,” according to the Sun. “It chimes like Big Ben and is constructed by hand,” a source says of the watch, which took two months to put together. “He went to Geneva to pick it up, and it’s believed he’ll present it to Ange as a prewedding gift.”

Earlier this week, Gillian Anderson parted ways with her longtime boyfriend and father of her two sons, Mark Griffiths. She’s not exactly a todeath-do-we-part type of girl — she’s previously married and divorced twice — but rumors are swirling that there are special circumstances to this split.

Pan-Sautéed Salmon Over Mediterranean Vegetables. This healthy recipe is inspired by some popular Greek flavours The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates stated, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food”. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, used spices and herbs from the Greek countryside for his medical healing. Greeks have been cooking on the open grill for thousands of years. They are famous for both their grilled vegetables and their

grilled fish. Grilling is also one of the healthiest ways of cooking food. Main ingredients of Greek cuisine are olive oil, vegetables and herbs, grains and bread, wine, fish, and various meats. Also important are olives, feta cheese, eggplant, courgette (zucchini), and yogurt. Greek desserts are characterized by nuts and honey. This heart-healthy Mediterranean recipe helps you get your vegetables in, along with providing a nice amount of fibre and omega3s.

1.

Heat 1/2 teaspoon of oil in a small non-stick skillet over low heat. Add prosciutto. Sauté for 5 minutes, or until crispy. Stir in garlic; turn off heat.

2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a

large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms and sauté for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Stir in tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Add spinach and basil and cook for 3 more minutes. Stir in prosciutto-garlic mixture. Cover; keep warm. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

3.

When it comes to undiscovered wine countries, Greece is the word. While you could make a decent argument for China and somewhere obscure in South America or Eastern Europe, the Greeks are often credited for getting the wine industry rolling by being the first to ferment grape juice a few centuries ago. Problem is, Greek wines come with more baggage than a family holiday with the Kardashian sisters. Though the good stuff is Mediterranean in style, I’m betting the only wine you’ve ever tried from Greece is the polarizing, pine-resonated Retsina — which has a taste that can only be acquired after copious shots of Ouzo. As if freaky flavours aren’t enough of a problem, the old adage “It’s all Greek to me” certainly applies to most of the country’s wine labels. Even if you can pronounce a word with five vowels, you would still need a UN translator to understand what it means. Selection varies dramatically across the country so it’s hard to recommend a go-to wine. Look for one made by one of its better producers (Boutari or D. Kourtakis) and with one of its endogenous classic grapes — agiorgitiko for red and moschofilero for white. “Opa!”

As a temporary fix, try diatomaceous earth. Say that three times fast! It said to be safer than using borax (sodium borate), especially if you have pets. Sprinkle a small amount of diatomaceous earth along cracks and baseboards, or above the cupboards. It’s a naturally occurring fine glasslike powder made from crushed fossilized algae. It is so abrasive that it damages the protective outer shell of creepy crawlies. When that protective exoskeleton is pierced, insects dry up and die. Ask for it at your local garden or hardware store. Warning: Carefully clean up diatomaceous earth with a damp rag instead of a vacuum to prevent clogging the filter. As with any problem, you’ll need to identify the source. For example, car-

penter ants love wet, rotting wood. When my home experienced an indoor ant invasion, it was due to the drain being clogged inside my refrigerator. Unable to drain properly, the water slowly leaked out the door, onto the floor and underneath the fridge — rotting the wood underneath. After tipping our fridge on its back and using an air compressor to remove the clog, my home is now ant-free. And for other natural and less toxic temporary solutions for silverfish, fleas, moths or roaches in the home try these home remedies: To repel silverfish, flies and moths, add a few drops of citronella essential oil and lavender

essential oil on cloth strips along windows or inside cupboards. Avoid using mothballs, which are made of toxic substances like naphthalene — a chemical associated with cancers. They’re also dangerous to children because they look like candy. Instead, store wool clothing and other garments with cedar blocks, cedar chips or in a cedar chest. Or, combine in a sachet two handfuls of dried lavender or rosemary herb with a tablespoon of dried clover and a tablespoon of dried lemon peel. Then toss these bundles into drawers, closets and cupboards. It smells nice to us, but not to moths!

Glenn and Stampeders get elusive first road victory MLB. Running back Cornish paces Calgary to crucial bounceback win Jon Cornish just needed a rest. Two weeks after coming up flat and then criticizing his offensive line in a crushing loss to the B.C. Lions, the Calgary Stampeders running back powered his team to a 31-20 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Thursday at Ivor Wynne Stadium. Cornish, who rushed for 170 yards and a touchdown while catching six passes for 47 more yards, said he relaxed during his team’s bye week and returned with a fresh mind. “Anytime you can reverse your fortunes from -1 to (170 yards), I would consider that a statement,” he said. “The O-line was doing their thing Quoted

tonight. They were pushing people around and when they do that, it makes my life easy.” Calgary improves to 3-3 with its first road win of the season while Hamilton falls to 3-3. Most of the pregame hype surrounded the first meeting between Calgary quarterback Kevin Glenn and Hamilton counterpart Henry Burris since they were traded for each other in the off-season. Glenn completed 15 of 28 pass attempts for 141 yards and one touchdown while Burris went 21 of 40 for 267 yards, one TD and one interception. But it was Cornish who took over the storyline. “That sometimes happens when you focus on two individuals. Other individuals sneak in there and make their way,” said Glenn about

Cornish’s performance. “I’m more happy that he had this kind of game than me beating my old team because you all think that’s it’s about me and revenge against the Ticats.” Bo Levi Mitchell, Romby Bryant and Nik Lewis also scored TDs for Calgary. Chevon Walker scored twice for Hamilton, one from a 21yard reception and another off a 47-yard rush. Calgary kicker Rene Paredes hit his lone field goal from 25 yards while Hamilton’s Luca Congi hit both field goal attempts, from 43 and 22 yards. After the game, Calgary head coach John Hufnagel praised Glenn’s perseverance in shaking off a tough first half. “Ever since (Glenn) got on the field for us, he’s shown that he’s not perfect, but he’s not going to quit,” said Hufnagel. “He hung in there, made some plays, got cracked a few times but picked himself up and kept making plays. “And his teammates helped him out. And that’s what we need, a full team effort, and I thought this one tonight was a full team effort.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Gary Bettman says the NHL will lock out its players if a new collective bargaining agreement can’t be reached by Sept. 15. The NHL commissioner delivered that news to the NHL Players’ Association during a bargaining session

on Thursday. Donald Fehr, the NHLPA’s executive director, had said repeatedly that they could agree to proceed with a new season even if a new agreement wasn’t in place when the current one expires. However, that’s not something Bettman and the NHL’s owners are interested in pursuing. Fehr is expected to deliver a counter-proposal to the league in Toronto next week.

Verbeek scores her second silver Women’s wrestling. Japan’s Yoshida denies Canadian grappler her first gold medal Canadian freestyle wrestler Tonya Verbeek had been in this situation before. She wrestled for gold in her Olympic debut at the 2004 Games in Athens and was devastated when she came up short. While Verbeek settled for second place again in London, rarely has a silver medallist seemed so happy after a loss. “I promised myself that leading in to this Olympics,

that I’m going to give my everything and the result will take care of itself,” Verbeek said. “You have to embrace that.” She seemed at peace as she walked to the mat for Thursday’s final against Olympic champion Saori Yoshida, who has simply dominated the 55-kilogram division over the last decade. Verbeek looked around the packed ExCeL London North Arena 2 venue as the crowd buzzed with excitement. This would be her final Olympic bout and win or lose, she was going to take in the moment. Yoshida had the backing of the pro-Japanese crowd and there was a roar when

she scored a three-point takedown in the first round. She outscored Verbeek again in the second round to win her third straight Olympic title. It was Canada’s second women’s freestyle wrestling medal of the Games after B.C.’s Carol Huynh won bronze in the 48-kilo division on Wednesday. Verbeek has yet to beat Yoshida in nine career meet-

ings. The 29-year-old Japanese star has won the world title at 55 kilos nine of the last 10 years. Canadian coach Marty Calder said they were prepared for the challenge and had no plans to surrender. “I didn’t think the Giants were going to win the Super Bowl this year either and neither did I think the L.A. Kings were going to win (the Stanley Cup),” Calder said. “We’re competitors. We come here and we give it our best and we give ourselves hope.” Verbeek qualified for the final with an impressive victory over Jackeline Renteria Castillo of Colombia. the canadian press

John Herdman has a picture of Christine Sinclair in his home office in Vancouver from last summer’s World Cup. Canada’s captain has her head in her hands, her face twisted in anger and despair. When Herdman took over as coach of the Canadian women’s soccer team last fall, he promised his players he would use that photo as his motivation. “I’ll never see a player of that quality in that state after a tournament,” Herdman says he told them. “It’s great to see Christine smiling, you know?” The Canadians will be smiling for a long time to come after capturing a bronze medal with a 1-0 win over France at

Christine Sinclair set the women’s Olympic record for tournament goals scored with six, including a hat trick in the semifinals.

the London Summer Games on Thursday — the first time a Canadian soccer team has ever climbed an Olympic podium, and a remarkable turnaround for a squad that only a year ago was in tatters after its disastrous World Cup performance. “Christine had the quote that’s been inspiring us all: ‘You can’t be great until you’ve achieved great things.’ Getting the medal today was that great thing,” Herdman said. Just when the game appeared headed for extra time — which would have been bad news for the gassed Canadians — 28-year-old Diana Matheson pounced on Canada’s lone scoring chance, running onto a deflection off a French de-

fender from a Sophie Schmidt shot, firing a low hard ball past French goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi. Rhian Wilkinson tossed the Oakville, Ont., native — all fivefeet of her — over her shoulder like a sack of flour in celebration. “I have no idea what happened. I can’t remember it,” Matheson said. “I think the ball came down the left and I was in the right place at the right time. The ball was right there, the net was basically open, it definitely was in slow motion.” The bronze marks the country’s first Summer Games medal in a traditional team sport since a silver in men’s basketball in 1936. It was also the redemption the Canadians had been dreaming of after hitting what they say was “rock bottom” at the World Cup. They went winless, mathematically eliminated in a 4-0 thrashing by the same France squad they beat Thursday at City of Coventry Stadium. the canadian press

Bolt lives up to claim of ‘living legend’ Track-and-field. Jamaican speedster repeats as 200-metre champion while his country sweeps medals

“The guy is just on another planet right now.”

Usain Bolt backed up his billing as a “living legend” by winning the Olympic 200 metres and becoming the first athlete to repeat as double Olympic sprint champion. “Bask in my glory,” Bolt boasted. “I’ve got nothing left to prove.” Undaunted by the first world record of the Olympic track meet run by 800-metre winner David Rudisha less than an hour before the 200 final, Bolt was not about to be upstaged by anyone. He dominated his favourite event almost from the starting gun and had enough of a lead to slow down at the line, bring his left index finger to his mouth and signal a “ssssshhh” that was broadcast around the globe. It should certainly silence the critics who claimed he was out of form ahead of the Olympics after losses to Yohan Blake at the Jamaican trials. “That was for all the people

fun and go out there and do our best.” His win in the 100 seemed to lighten his burden in his more favoured event. He discarded the black woolen hat he wore before his races in the 100, which reflected his mood and the cold conditions. Thursday’s weather of 23 C and a shot at the doubledouble brought out the Bolt of old. Wearing a Jamaica-yellow cap backwards and joking with his kit volunteer, he made the pre-race activities feel like a small-town Caribbean weekend track meet. Next to him, Blake was all intensity and concentration. But it wasn’t enough to upstage Bolt like he did at the Jamaican trials. Jamaica’s sweep in the 200 helped the Caribbean nation of 2.9-million people join Russia in second place on the goldmedal standings with three apiece. The Associated Press

that doubted me,” Bolt said. “I was just telling them, ‘You can stop talking now because I am a legend.’” But he didn’t stand a chance of hushing the 80,000-capacity crowd at the Olympic Stadium, which went wild as Bolt delivered on his promise of winning when it counts most.

They knew they were witness to something unique. “I’ve done something that no one has done before, which is defend my double title,” Bolt said. “Back-to-back for me, I would say I’m the greatest.” His 19.32-second winning time was just .02 seconds outside his winning mark at the

Beijing Olympics. Just like Sunday’s victory in the 100, his junior training partner Blake stayed closest, and Warren Weir made it a full Jamaican medal sweep before Wallace Spearmon of the United States crossed in fourth place. Bolt kissed the track twice

before striking his trademark “To the World” pose, pointing both his index fingers upward to show what he had achieved. He can still make it six-forsix at two Olympics if he leads his nation to victory in the relay. “It’s all about the 4x100 now,” Bolt said, “to have some

Mark de Jonge savours Olympic trip after injury Kayaker. Broke middle finger just three weeks ahead of Canadian Olympic trials at Lake Lanier, Ga. Not many of us exercise with an 80-pound dumbbell. Even fewer drop one on their finger and still make it to the Olympics. Perhaps only Mark de Jonge can lay claim to both.

Restored to health, the muscular 28-year-old from Halifax opens his Olympic campaign on Friday in the K-1 200-metre heats. His Olympic dream seemed over in mid-April when he broke the middle finger of his left hand. He was doing a dumbbell bench press on one side when he lost his balance. He put his hand down on the ground for balance, having to throw the weight away to do so. Unfortunately it did not go

as far as he had planned. One side of the dumbbell hit the ground. The other smashed his hand. The good news was that it was a small break and the bone wasn’t displaced. But at the time — the accident during a training camp in Indian Harbour Beach, Fla. — he feared missing out on London. Given he had left the sport after not making the Beijing team, that possibility was especially painful.

“There was a whole lot of thoughts happening at one time, I couldn’t really pick one but that was definitely one of them,” he said. “I’m just really glad that it all worked out.” The injury may have turned into a blessing. “It made me wake up every day thinking ‘OK, I need to do everything that I can to get faster today,’” he said. “And that’s kind of stayed with me on the water now too.” The canadian Press

Tory Nyhaug. Canadian just misses making Olympic BMX semifinals Canadian Tory Nyhaug, who sacrificed his spleen for his sport just two months ago, missed out on the semifinals of the rough-andtumble sport of Olympic BMX racing by a single point Thursday. The 20-year-old from Coquitlam, B.C., won his fifth and final run to finish with 19 points. But Latvian Rihards Veide finished right behind him to push his total to 20 points and become the fourth and last rider out of their eight-man heat to advance. “I have no regrets and I fought right till the end. I have to be proud of myself.”

Nyhaug finished third, seventh, sixth, third and first in his five runs, while the Latvian was sixth, fourth, third, fourth and second. The 32-man field was divided into four heats of eight riders apiece for the quarter-finals, held under a burning sun. Four riders from each group eventually moved on. Between heats, a DJ played music for the crowd and talked up the “redonkulous” riders. BMX (from bicycle motocross) made its Olympic debut four years ago in Beijing. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Horoscopes

Crossword: Geography

Aries

March 21 - April 20 Today, you will be even more daring and adventurous than you usually are. Trust that fate is on your side (it is) and that if you take the occasional calculated risk, it is more likely than not to pay off.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Try not to make life too complicated, especially on the home front where loved ones will happily go along with your plans so long as they feel they are a part of them. If they’re not, why not?

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 You should find it easier to be more outgoing and expressive now that both the Sun and Mercury, your ruler, are moving in your favour. Your social life is about to get even busier and you will profit from new friendships.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Life has been quite exhausting of late and you could do with a rest. So take one. It does not matter that other people think you should be running here, there and everywhere. Tell them to get lost.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 Your mind is now clear enough to see that whatever successes you have in the future will come from the decisions and the efforts you make today, tomorrow and over the next few weeks. So get moving.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 You may be eager to push ahead with certain ideas but the planets urge you to slow down a bit. You cannot possibly do all the things you would like to do, so be selective. Difficult choices are called for.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Certain people are taking you for granted and it’s got to stop. That applies especially to your work and career where it seems you are not getting the recognition you deserve. Do something to get yourself noticed today.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 The Sun’s move through one of the more outspoken areas of your chart means you’ll let everyone know what you think about what’s going on in the world. Some will be offended but all will admire your willingness to speak out.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 The Sun in Leo at this time of year helps you to look inside yourself and focus on issues you usually prefer to ignore. Don’t be afraid to face your demons — chances are they don’t really exist.

GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY hazy

The odds are not against you as you may think because if God is on your side who can be against you. Never allow your past or present to determine your future, neither should you allow the thought of condemnation to worry you. Welcome Jesus, the Redeemer into your life today and you will see a great transformation because there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Jesus loves you but He loves you too much to leave you in a despicable state. He has the ultimate say about your life.
